Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen will receive a £40,000 bonus if his former club Ajax win the Eredivisie title.

The Daily Mail reports how the Denmark international stands to pocket a tidy little sum based on the four league games he played for Frank de Boer's side prior to his Premier League move last August.

Eriksen arrived at White Hart Lane in an £11million deal as one of seven major signings made by Spurs following the world-record sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

And, despite Tottenham's disappointing 2013/14 campaign that looks set to see them miss out on Champions League qualification again, the 22-year-old playmaker will be rewarded for Ajax's domestic success in the Dutch top-flight.

The full bonus payment stands at £250,000 to players that have featured in at least 25 league games, whereas Eriksen and Atletico Madrid defender Toby Alderweireld will take home a comparatively smaller fee for their small contribution to this year's title triumph.

Spurs star Eriksen returned to the Amsterdam Arena earlier this season, and received a standing ovation from Ajax supporters paying tribute to the diminutive attacking midfielder, who won three league championships during his spell in Holland.

He has been one of the few plus points for Tottenham this season, impressing with nine goals in 31 appearances in all competitions for Tim Sherwood's side.
